KONICHIWA

We've reached the end of the RBN/RMX series (aw shux...), with part five enlisting the more than able talents of Wolfgang Voigt and Mad Professor for a total curveball to complete the set. Wolfgang Voigt is a prolific German electronic composer and DJ. He's worked under a variety of aliases but more recently achieved quite a large audience for his Gas project. He was also responsible for remixing Peter Hamill on the amazing Astral Industries remix project. Anyway, there's two mixes to get stuck into here from the esteemed German. His 'Gas' mix takes cues from the celebrated project, slowly and deliberately rolling out a multi-layered magic carpet of electronic ambience and calm serenity; Robyn's vocals drifting across the mix with an angelic, ethereal slant. On his second remix, Voigt's 'New Romantic' version sees a more pop friendly aesthetic explored, with more of the original's evocative vocal part included for its sensory boosts. Modern day dub luminary, Mad Professor gets to contribute the final track of the series; rolling out a powerful, fast paced, steppers dub of "Electric". Excellent!

Dancing On My Own / With Every Heartbeat - Cassius & Joakim Remixes

Robyn's RMX/RBN project continues as Cassius and Joakim step up for the third installment of the series. Cassius deliver a highly electrified and emotive version, draping Robyn's evocative vocal part across a thoroughly technoid sound palette, but still allowing the natural arrangement and craftsmanship of the song plenty of room to shine. On the flip they make it an all French affair as Joakim contributes a killer remix, playfully skirting around the electro-pop foundations it was build on and adding shed loads of extra instrumentation - so much so it even warrants a dub - excellente!

Love Kills (Harry Romero Remix) / Be Mine (Mark E)

The RMX/RBN project saw Robyn invite some of her favourite artists in dance music from across the globe to remix key tracks from throughout her career. This is the second twelve from this week's slew and one of five separate remix packages. I have to say, this one made me smile - Subliminal superstar DJ Harry Romero is enlisted for "Love Kill", dropping both and remix and a dub - I guess Robyn had just as much fun dancing to this cat back in the day as we did here in Manchester - so she got him in to remix her tunes! Choo chooo! On the flip is another house star, Mark E, who get busy deploying on of his faithfully drugged-up and drawn out remixes. Similar in vain to his iconic "E-Version" series, Mark squashes elements of the original under a highly elastic, rubbery soundbed, deploying some tasteful grain delays while Robyn's lush vocal echoes nonchalantly from the recesses of the mix. Mega!

Hang With Me (Axel Boman Remix)/ Stars 4 Ever (Zhala & Heal The World Remix)

The RMX/RBN project saw Robyn invite some of her favourite artists in dance music from across the globe to remix key tracks from throughout her career. One of five remix twelves this one features Swedish house superstar Axel Boman and Zhala & Heal The World - a new project with very few details to announce at present (this is, infact, their only work to date). As you'd expect, the Boman version is suitable techy - intricate percussion nuances working in tandem with Robyn heavenly and angelic vocals for a beautifully sympathetic remix which shudders and shakes with electrical goodness throughout. Zhala & Heal The World stict more to the OG, taking cues from Robyn alongside Sia and La Roux - stadium filling electro-clash shimmer with cataclysmic waves of cloud bursting goodness. Nice!

Indestructible (The Black Madonna Remix) / Main Thing (Mr Tophat Remix)

Second one this week, and the forth (if you're counting) record to come from Robyn's much celebrated RMX/RBN project; this time round its the turn of house and techno royalty The Black Madonna alongside the lesser known but equally impressive Mr Tophat. TBM delivers a searing electronic house cut, utilizing the vocal with majestic results. Mr Tophat takes time out from deliver stadium-slaying tech-house cuts for some relaxed, conga-driven dream-pop with a nice, floor-friendly chug to it. Top stuff!
